Quit being a troll Garl....you know well that Plyushev is a poor coach with no control over his players. I remember you arguing exactly that during U-20 4 nations last month. Plyushev's accomplishments of a decade ago have little significant as it relates to today’s game.
Who cares if Popeikin lost to Canada in the final…..based on talent alone that joke of a 1987 generation shouldn’t have even been there. They overachived because it was a
in every sense of the word; the exact element that's holding Russia back at WJC recently. Honestly, 1st line was Krysanov, Bumagin and an underraged Cherepanov.
Popeikin with talent = Gold
And, yes, Nemchinov is improving. However, the fact that FHR was willing to put a coach with no experience behind the bench and, more sadly, keep him there after summit series disaster more than proves my point.
